If fall brunch had a flavor, it would be in the form of these delicious apple cider mimosas. Champagne with apple cider and a honey coated rim dipped in cinnamon sugar is a sweet, weekend treat! Pairs well with a burning fire, fuzzy blanket and great conversation! A cinnamon candle prolly wouldn't hurt either ;)
A few years back, some girlfriends and I took a weekend trip to Chi-town for my bestie's b-day and on one of our outings, we were served "Apple Cider Mimosas." Well, all these years later, I can't recall the name of that brunch spot, BUT I haven't forgotten about these drinks, so, I felt it was only necessary to share the love. Being that it's fall and the holidays are upon us, these delicious little things truly couldn't be more fitting. They are definitely on the sweeter side, but they are absolutely perfect and always a hit, especially amongst the ladies! Enjoy for a weekend fall brunch with the girls or on a chilly fall night with bae.
Prep Time: A minute or so
Yield: Directions are for 1 prepared mimosa
What You'll Need:
Apple cider, chilled
Prosecco or dry champagne of your choice, chilled
1/4 cup honey, drizzled onto a plate
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon, plus an extra dash for each mimosa
Combine your cinnamon and sugar onto a plate and whisk with a fork to combine. Set aside.
Drizzle a generous amount of honey onto another plate and place next to the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Taking an 8 oz champagne glass, dip the rim in the honey to coat, creating a circular twisting motion as you lift up to release any excess, then dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat the rim.
Slowly set the champagne glass upright and then add in a sprinkle of cinnamon to the bottom of the glass.
Pour in approximately 4 oz of champagne or Prosecco, and then about 2 oz of apple cider.
Be sure to hold the stem of the glass while you sip, the honey gets a lil sticky and drippy (but don't fret, it's delicious). Turn on the fireplace and grab a cozy blanket. Happy sipping! :)
